Red Sox prospect Adalberto Ibarra, a catcher whom the club signed last summer, underwent surgery on the labrum in his right shoulder last month. Ibarra will likely be sidelined throughout the offseason, but the Sox are hopeful that he will be able to return to games (at least as a designated hitter) by spring training.
“We ended up having to clean up his shoulder a little bit. He will actually be out until spring training,” said Sox farm director Mike Hazen. “He wasn’t able to get over the hump throwing-wise. We were in that situation where, do we wait and have it flare up and then he misses the season, or, if we do it now, he rehabs the entire offseason and he’s back playing in April."
The Sox initially signed Ibarra to a five-year major league contract, but concerns about the shoulder resulted in a failed physical that led the two sides to renegotiate a deal. Ibarra was signed...

Mike Florio of profootballtalk.com joined the Dennis & Callahan show Wednesday morning to offer his insight on the latest NFL news, mainly the Randy Moss waiver situation.
Said Florio: "My first thought when this all went down Monday is that New York had better get ready for Randy Moss, because he fits the profile. ... Rex Ryan presses the right buttons and gets maximum performance out of these guys. But the Jets are down near the bottom of the list when it comes down to the waiver priority."
Florio is convinced the Patriots have no interest in bringing back Moss but might put in a claim anyhow. "I think he's going to get claimed," Florio said. "The question is who is he going to get claimed by. I talked to a GM yesterday who said he believes a boatload of teams are going to claim him. The person I spoke to yesterday thinks the Patriots are going to claim him, not because they want him,...
Wide receiver Randy Moss was in New Jersey meeting with members of the Jets on Tuesday morning, according to New York's WFAN Radio. Host Craig Carton, citing unidentified sources, said Wednesday morning that Moss was meeting, “at the same spot Mark Sanchez likes to frequent near his home.” Moss was placed on waivers by the Vikings on Tuesday, and teams have 24 hours to claim the wide receiver, with the team that has the worst record getting first crack at landing him. The Patriots, who at 6-1 have the best record in the NFL, will have the last chance to claim him. For more Patriots news, check out weei.com/patriots.
While most everyone else was taking bets on where he would end up — the Dolphins, the Rams, the Seahawks, the Jets ... or even (gasp) the Patriots — wide receiver Randy Moss wants your opinion on where he should go.
Moss’s rarely used official Twitter feed chirped just after 11 p.m. on Tuesday with a link to a page on his personal web site that asks fans to weigh in on where they would like to see him play. The poll offered the following choices: Miami, Seattle, St. Louis or Tennessee. (Fans can weigh in in the forum.) Not sure if that’s a list of finalists already put together by Moss and his agent Joel Segal, but it’s an intriguing collection of teams nonetheless.
Moss was officially placed on waivers by the Vikings on Tuesday afternoon, and teams have 24 hours to put in a claim on him, with the worst team in the league getting first crack at Moss. At...
